Reserve Campus Space

The buildings on the Sedalia campus have been designed to support the programs, events, meetings, and conferences of SFCC students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests.

SFCC will make its facilities available to off-campus community groups and organizations whenever possible, within the context of the facility use policy and regulation. Noncollege facility users will be charged fees appropriate to the facilities used and the type of organization making the request.

Please refer to the Facility Use Application to request use of facilities for your event. For more information or questions, contact Ethelene Jagels at (660) 596-7286 or send an email to ReserveIt@sfccmo.edu.

Community groups and organizations using SFCC facilities and requiring food or beverages for their event must contact Catering Services to make necessary arrangements. Catering Services has right of first refusal for all food service/catering for events held on campus.

Post Flyers on Campus Bulletin Boards

  • Types of Flyers Allowed on Campus

    Bulletin boards are provided throughout the Sedalia campus for displaying printed materials for off-campus organizations, groups and individuals as follows:

    Classified/Commercial/Political

    “Classified/Commercial/Political” bulletin boards are reserved for items and services posted by campus individuals; for-profit off-campus groups and organizations; off-campus individuals; and political postings, and are labeled as such.

    Community

    “Community” bulletin boards are reserved for nonprofit off-campus groups and organizations for posting upcoming events and activities in the community, and are labeled as such.

    All other bulletin boards on the Sedalia campus are limited to postings by on-campus groups and organizations.

    Bulletin boards at extended campus locations are managed similarly by directors.

  • Get Your Flyer Stamped and Approved

    Visit Marketing and Communications in the lower level of the Hopkins Student Services center to have your flyer stamped for approval for posting on Classified/Commercial/Political and Community bulletin boards. Flyers without a specific event date will be approved to post for a maximum of 30 days. Unapproved materials or materials posted in incorrect areas will be removed. Marketing and Communications posts approved flyers each Friday. Individuals may ask to post flyers themselves if timeliness is an issue.

    To post job listings, visit Career Services in Student Services, Room 750, in the Hopkins Student Services Center or email careerservices@sfccmo.edu.

    On-campus organizations and groups requesting to post flyers on SFCC bulletin boards should visit Student Services to have their flyers stamped and approved for posting.

Expressive Speech and Activities

SFCC’s Regulation 1330 defines “Expressive Activities” to include, but not limited to, all forms of noncommercial peaceful assembly, protests, speeches, distribution of literature, carrying signs, and circulating petitions, and “Grounds” means all outdoor areas of the college’s Sedalia campus.

The outdoor areas at other college locations are not owned by the college, and are therefore not subject to this policy and regulation.

Areas Open for Use

Grounds are available for users from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. Individuals wishing to engage in Expressive Activities outside of these hours must follow the reservation process listed below. Overnight use of college grounds is not permitted. The college is closed during certain times throughout the year for holidays and semester breaks and use of college grounds is not permitted during these times.

Reservation Process

Advance reservations by individuals or groups not affiliated with the college who wish to engage in Expressive Activities are required only under the following circumstances:

  • When Expressive Activities occur outside of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday
  • When the individual or group engaging in the Expressive Activities anticipates that fifteen (15) or more individuals will join in the Expressive Activities
  • When Expressive Activities may require increased use of campus resources or present an increased risk of disruption to the campus. Examples of such situations would include, but not be limited to, the erection of temporary displays, use of free-standing signage, tents, booths or tables, the use of seating, or other uses that present a heightened security risk

For any of the circumstances listed above, individuals or groups not affiliated with the college should complete a Reservation for Use of Campus Grounds Form 1330 at least 24 hours prior to the Expressive Activities.

Expressive Activities by individuals or groups fewer than 15 not affiliated with the college from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday do not require advance reservation.

Members of the college community are not required to seek advance reservations and may spontaneously and contemporaneously assemble on college grounds.

For more information, refer to the complete Community/College Relations Regulation 1330 and Reservation for Use of Campus Grounds Form 1330.
